Below the fold are four headlines, all but one from Pepe Escobar, that tie together three facts:
- Saudi Arabia is the single greatest source of global terror.
- Saudi Arabia may be about to crash and have a coup.
- The banking families are out to destroy Russia while shorting Europe.
The categorical imperative remains; the Masters of the Universe are ready to bring the whole world down in a major recession basically to strangle Russia.
“If this is purely a conversation about counterterrorism cooperation, and if the Saudis are a big part of the problem in creating terrorism in the first place, then how persuasive of an argument is it?”
The illegal war on Yemen, conducted with full US acquiescence, led by — who else — Prince Mohammad, and largely carried out by the proverbial band of mercenaries, has instead handsomely profited al-Qaeda in the Arabic Peninsula (AQAP), just as the war on Syria has profited mostly Jabhat al-Nusra, a.k.a. al-Qaeda in Syria.
Al Sharqiyya — the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia — holds only 4 million people, the overwhelming majority Shi’ites. And yet it produces no less than 80% of Saudi oil.
All the “terror” we face, real or manufactured, springs out from just one source; not “Islam,” but intolerant, demented Wahhabism.
